Christian Death : Sex and Drugs and Jesus Christ : 1988



Rozz Williams founded Christian Death in October 1979, with bassist James McGearty, drummer George Belanger and guitarist Jay. The band name was a satirical play on words derived from the designer brand Christian Dior. The first Christian Death performance in front of a live audience was at a Castration Squad gig in 1980, when Castration Squad invited Christian Death on stage to play a couple songs.


While living at his mother's house for six months without a band, Williams met Valor Kand and David Glass of Pompeii 99, and found certain common artistic ground with the band. Williams was open to the idea of possibly collaborating with the band.

Prior to Rozz joining, Pompeii 99 was fronted by Valor on vocals and guitar as well as Gitane Demone on lead vocals and some keyboards, David Glass on drums and Shayn Taylor Shubert on bass.

When Rozz agreed to join Pompeii 99, the plan was to have 3 lead vocalists, Rozz, Valor and Gitane, however, as Pompeii 99 was preparing for their first US/European tour, an offer was made to Valor by the French label I.A.S. to record an album in Europe prior to the tour, on the condition that the band give up the name Pompeii 99 and ressurect the name Christian Death. Rozz was reluctant to do this as use of the name evoked bad memories, Valor was weary of giving up the band he had conceived and owned.


After many line up changes, at one point during the 1990s there were two bands with the name Christian Death. One featured Williams, and the other featured Valor Kand. Kand has been the lead guitarist since the second album "Catastrophe Ballet", and later became lead vocalist as well.



On April 1, 1998,Roz Williams hanged himself in his West Hollywood apartment. Williams was 34.



1. ) THIS IS HERESY

Lyrics : Valor


Immortality sucked greedly at my throat
They shall lick the dust like serpents
Hold your tongue
Get the behind me

Your church makes me vomit
Into the vertiginous abyss
Enfeebled by vice
Dear God allow me to show gratitude
For my fortunate eyes of truth

Lord, how long shall the wicked,
Lord, how long shall the wicked triumph on Earth

These loathsome paracities that cling
To the cross, the cloth and the skin
Soaked in the blood of man
Not the body of Christ

This is heresy
This is heresy
I admit, in no way approval



2. ) JESUS WHERE IS THE SUGAR

Lyrics : Gitane DeMone

Jesus if you love me where is the sugar ?
Jesus if you love me where is the sugar ?
In the churches
In the steeples

Where's the sugar ?

In the bedrooms of the people

Where's the sugar ?

In the dancehalls
In the streets
In the closets
In the sex shops

Where's the sugar ?

Jesus if you love me where's the sugar ?

I've been praying six long years
Where's the sugar ?

In the shadows
In the kitchens
In the school rooms
Where's the sugar ?

In the cinema
At the bus stop
In the toilets
In the graveyards

Jesus if you love me where is ths sugar ?

I' ve been praying six long years .




3. ) WRETCED MANKIND

Lyrics : Valor

Have no pleasure in tears
let not your eye
cast a shadow
on the silhouette of the filthy planet
shun the pain

even though
the earth beneath your staggering stride tumbles
even though
disappointment screams in the cyclone of your mind

even enough
You have been smitten five or six million times by the
bastards of Mankind

When destiny bears the funnel of truth
only then will we be bound
To walk circumspectly

Stand tall

Even thought
the plague of maledictions surrounds you

even though
the scorners have blessed you with their dismal pride

Even though
You are condemned to exist by the rules by the bastards of mankind

And when they tell you
they know what is RIGHT
By the righteousness that abounds them
Fuck-em
Just tell them I said that



4. ) THE THIRD ANTICHRIST

Lyricks : Valor

From the larval torpor bon ton

From a thousand shreds , shieking voices
livid eyes , thronging in sojourns

From beyond the dunes of shifting sand
In the chambers of unguiculate sacciform

From the Almighty avenging words of pernicious thoughts
Where his abborrence is nurtured

From the grievous wounds flow solemn tears
In the nightmare and knavery of his

3 STIGMATA



5. ) ERECTION

Lyricks : Gitane DeMone

Steely fingers pry open the cask and creep inside
Inside that cracked little weld
A turbine threw a blade
Clamps firmly in place
Nothing was wrong with his primary system
A terrific air rasp
The iron dust flew like powders
Billows clouds of fire
Shoot it down , down , down

Slam it into the valves
Kill it off , off , off
Remove the tools in motion


6. ) TEN THOUSAND HUNDRED TIMES

Lyricks : Valor

What monstrous chaos
You were a youngster who succumbed
to the ravages of old age
and I am assailed by the ellipse
as spoken in due season

Children reserve your pardon
A blessing , before the carcasses of rot

Beautiful little child open your eyes
Pull the angel' s face close to your mouth
Cannot your wings sense a remote flight

Walls of dust in an illusion of voices .

There exists infinity
As bequeathed to you

Is only an instant
And you are everything that ever lived .


7. ) INCENDIARY LOVER

Lyrics : Gitane DeMone and Valor


It starts with a wink
and ends in disgrace
A question of silence I' m told
But love in clean
Or so I' m told



Incendiary lover
enter the threshold of time

They said that he was dirty , dirty , dirty
Incendiary lover

She undulates beneath him
Miasma , seduction
Slow and innocent corruption

Transgressing all frontiers
far beyond bordellos

Incendiary lover
lost in the threshold of time

They said that he was dirty , dirty , dirty .
Incendiary lover .



Sex and Drugs and Jesus Christ is the sixth album for Christian Death. This was a turning point for the band. The cover depicted an image of Jesus shooting up heroin. This was a full front attack by Valor against the church with a scathing heretical mockery of the organized Christianity.
